PRECOLLEGE SUMMER INSTITUTES

Precollege Summer Institutes are designed for advanced high school students who wish to gain academically challenging college-level experience.

NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT

For those who register before the program payment deadline as stipulated on each program website, a nonrefundable deposit ($400 for international students; $150 for all others) is required to complete registration. Please be sure of your intention to register as this deposit is NOT refundable under any circumstances. The nonrefundable deposit is not an additional fee and will apply toward your summer balance.

After the payment deadline, full payment of the program fee, including the nonrefundable deposit, is required to complete registration. Please note that certain miscellaneous fees such as the Document and Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) fees will post to the student’s BruinBill account if applicable and as such, must be paid on MyUCLA after registration.

For programs that require instructor consent for admission or are waitlisted, no payment is due until admission.

If you are not ready to pay, you can first submit this online registration form and later retrieve the form to make the required payment. Once a valid payment is made, your registration is complete and your spot will be reserved.

Payment can be made by credit card or electronic check using the secure CASHNet SmartPay system. All credit card transactions made through CASHNet SmartPay are subject to a nonrefundable 2.75% service fee.

FEES AND PAYMENT DEADLINES

Summer fees for Summer Institutes varies by program and student status, among other factors. All applicants must review the applicable program website for information on various policies and procedures including fees and payment. However, you can refer to the FEES page for a quick estimate of your summer fees and the CALENDAR page for a summary of payment deadlines.

If registered before the payment deadline, your remaining balance reflecting the nonrefundable deposit must be paid in full through MyUCLA by the payment deadline. After the payment deadline, applicants are prompted to make full payment of the program fee. If you are subject to assessment of the Document fee and/or the IEI fee, be sure to check your BruinBill account after registration. Those fees must be paid on MyUCLA.

Delinquency in payment may result in enrollment cancellations, holds on academic records, and/or collection actions.

REFUNDS

Please note that summer offerings are subject to change, without prior notice, by action of the academic department offering the program. Changes include, but are not limited to, meeting time and location changes, instructor substitutions, and course/program cancellation. Reasonable efforts will be made to notify students of such changes and to suggest alternatives when applicable. In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result.

Enrolled Students

The following policy applies to all enrolled students, i.e., students who have submitted the required payment for registration.

  • The nonrefundable deposit may NOT be refunded under ANY circumstances.
  • Program fees, as well as other applicable fees (such as IEI, document, health insurance fees) minus the nonrefundable deposit are refundable until the program refund deadline.
  • No refunds will be granted after the refund deadline.

Please refer to your program website and see PROGRAM WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY under FEES AND PAYMENT for details.

Non-Enrolled Students

Students who have not completed registration, i.e., those who have only submitted the online registration form but have not made the required payment to complete registration, are not considered enrolled in the program and may cancel their online registration form at any time with no financial penalty.
